Forest Ride and I Make the New Metal Template

Forest ride

Barry showed up this morning so we went out for a bike ride. The ground was just right for riding after the recent rain.

We stopped at this spring called Pig Wallow for a drink of water after riding around for awhile.spring1

After riding around for awhile we headed on up to our break area at the top and had a nice break.view2

Coming down from the break area we ran into this downed tree. We are preparing to trim a passage through the trees as all we had was hand clippers.tree3

We rode around some more and then headed on home. Barry took off for his home and went in for a nap.

I puttered around in the yard and did some chair hopping for most of the day.

Metal template construction

But later in the day, I worked on making this cardboard template out of sheet metal, which is the piece in the back.template4

Now the template had to be bent to shape. I needed to clamp the metal and looked for some adjustable clamps that size but couldn’t find any, so I did it the old fashioned way with wire.bending5

This is the finished product. The pipe is marked using the template and then the metal is cut and shaped to fit on another piece of pipe. I think this template will work real well, especially now that Tom has the right measurements..template6

Nice day.
